Bees on a plane! Hive swarms jet at Fort Lauderdale airport

Humans aren't the only species buzzing mad about baggage fees.

That hum a grounds crew heard at Hollywood-Fort Lauderdale International Airport wasn't the usual sound coming from a jet engine.

It was thousands of bees who decided the jet would make a good spot to nest.

The privately owned Falcon Jet had to be sprayed down by a Broward Sheriff's Office Fire Rescue truck. The bees totally covered the left wing of the plane. No word if BSO or the Red Cross is going to help the bees find a new home, but our guess is the pests are on their own.

This is the second time the bees have swarmed the plane, employees at the airport said, which begs the question, are they using honey for fuel?
